DEA: Pair smuggled heroin inside boxes of tomatoes

Heroin hidden in boxes holding tomatoes

A saucy pair of drug dealers allegedly hid 22 pounds of heroin — worth $3 million — inside cardboard boxes of plum tomatoes.

Agents found four pounds of the heroin when they pulled Abel Abad and David Collazo over last month as they drove Abad’s 2007 Dodge Caliber through Upper Manhattan — stashed under the false bottom of a dicey box of tomatoes on the rear passenger seat, officials said.

Another 18 pounds was found hidden in still more boxes of tomatoes recovered from Collazo’s rented U-Haul van, which he’d left in the parking lot of a Best Western Hotel in Fort Lee, NJ.

All of the boxes were labeled “Primo Italiano Roma Tomatoes,” officials said, and had been packed in Chicago.

The investigation was conducted by the city’s Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor and the DEA’s New York Drug Enforcement Task Force and the New York State Police K-9 unit.

Abad, 45, of Chicago, and Collazo, 26, of La Mesa, Calif., each face a maximum of 20 years prison if convicted.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
